55 Rule?


I'm 75 years old. According to the "55 year rule," I shouldn't be scheduled for re-examinations anymore. However, the VA continues to cut my benefits if I don't show up. What's the deal with being 55 years old?

I've never heard of a '55 year rule' and can't think of anything that would come close. To my knowledge there isn't any such rule and if you're scheduled for an exam you must show up.
